A multitude of choices for Kingdom students wanting to study abroad

Cambodian students have far more choices in recent years in regards to education opportunities both locally and internationally.

While the growth of local education institutions offers more choices of study programs with better quality, many Cambodian students are also pursuing overseas qualifications, either through full scholarships, partial scholarships or through their own funding.

With options available to them, they face a new challenge – making an informed decision that best suits their career goals and personal aspirations, which is not as easy as it sounds!

Below is some information on some of the most popular study destinations for Cambodian students:

Australia

Australia is a popular destination for international students from around the world. Home to leading universities, it offers a relaxed, affordable study experience and strong career opportunities in some of the world’s most liveable cities.

Many Australian universities are ranked among the top 400 universities by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. There are large Cambodian migrant communities in Victoria and New South Wales.

New Zealand

Looking for a world-class education in a safe, beautiful environment? New Zealand could be for you!

When choosing to study in New Zealand you can be confident that any institution you’re considering will meet the highest educational standards.

It is also one of the world’s most beautiful countries, known as the “Land of the Long White Cloud”. Similarly, its education system is world class. From expert teaching staff to advanced facilities and resources, New Zealand is increasingly a leader in higher education.

The United Kingdom

Wherever in the world you choose to pursue your career, a degree from a university in the United Kingdom is internationally respected and considered a quality education. This impression is backed up by the numbers, with the UK producing 14 percent of the world’s most cited academic papers and 5 percent of the world’s scientific research.

These figures are all the more impressive considering the countries that comprise the United Kingdom are home to just 1 percent of the world’s population.

USA

More international students study in the USA than any other country, and for good reason.

While many of the world’s top institutions are in the USA, there are also around 5,000 universities and colleges offering an education that can lead to career success.The USA is a country of great diversity and choice; from liberal arts colleges on an intimate scale to huge state campuses and leading research-driven universities.

Canada

Academic excellence, affordability and adventure – Canada stands out as an ideal place to study. Canada hosts more than 250,000 international students and has experienced a huge increase in demand from overseas students in recent years.

Cambodian students and their parents may find more information or get advice on international education plan for themselves or their children from professional student counsellors at the Study Abroad and Scholarships Centres of IDP Education located at campuses of the Australian Centre of Education (ACE).

IDP Education is a world leader for international education and student placement services. Information, advices and enrolment assistance provided by IDP Education is free of charge. sponsored
